The Dwyer Program provides non-clinical support by Veterans to Veterans. Many Veterans are
often reluctant to speak with anyone who is unable to understand the mental and physical
challenges they face daily. Trained to keep doubts and vulnerabilities to themselves, Veterans
are hesitant to discuss issues such as mental health, relationships with family and friends, and
barriers to regain sustainability. This can lead to a destructive and devastating journey when
arriving back home; including substance use, domestic violence, sexual assault, homelessness,
chronic unemployment, and suicide.
